Baby Expense: What To Do When Baby
As you probably know, baby expense should be high on your list of things to plan for, before the baby comes. There is no cheap way to have and raise a baby: it takes sweat, work, lots of cash, patience, and more to have a happy, healthy baby. Some studies suggest that you will spend anywhere between $150,000 and $200,000 for your kids by the time they are 18 years old, not including private schools, special lessons, or college.
Talk Your Child Clever
Most parents can hardly wait for their baby to say its first word. This usually happens between the nine months and a year. From about two years, the child should be able to use simple phrases, and by three he should be able to use full sentences. By four, he should be fully able to talk, although he may still make grammatical errors. By five, he should have acquired basic language.
Dyslexia: Is the Shoe Perhaps on the Wrong Foot
Reading is the most important skill that a child must acquire at school, because one must learn to read to be able to read to learn. The implication of this is that the child who is a poor reader will usually also be a poor learner.
The "B" Word
Former students would probably attest to the fact that few things tried my patience as much as did the statement, “This is boring!” As I reflect back on my many years in the classroom, I can’t help but feel a tad bit sorry for the first kid who made the mistake of uttering those words each year. It was rare to hear the phrase a second time because most kids vividly recalled my “sermon,” and they didn’t want to risk a repeat performance.
Using Music To Calm Your Baby
Music is a wonderful way for you to calm and soothe your baby, especially during the first year.How many times have your heard parents say that there was nothing that they could do with their crying, fussing baby until they tried music.This is because music does indeed soothe the savage beast, or in this case, the baby.
The greatest discovery of my generation about 1900 is that human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitudes of mind.

If I Hurt You, Then Im Sorry
This statement has stopped many a war in my house.My oldest two children are two years apart in age and would fight about everything and nothing when they were little.One would anger the other and then deny that it ever happened.One would accidentally harm the other during play and not want to accept responsibility for the others anger.Seldom did a day pass by that one of them wasnt screaming at the other for some horrible crime.It never failed when I would be brought in to mediate, theyd both claim they were innocent and the other was bad.How many times did one of them try to convince me that the other was lying and just trying to frame them for a crime they didnt commit.Whats a parent to do
I’m Sorry! Blame-Game or Accountability
A powerful tool for health as we approach the new year can be to focus on giving and/or receiving only real apologies when we want to heal a rift with a family member, friend, or co-worker.
